Letter 1

Hello, Jeff!!!
Today I really had a fine surprise. Thank you for this little gift - for your letter from another country.I never had souvenirs from foregners and may be I will print your letter and keep it like a souvenir from you) I hope you aren't against. Frankly speaking I am very thankful that you found time to write me a letter. Thank you, Jeff!!!
I am rather inexperienced in computers because I am a cook by my education and we only had the basic course as Word, Excel. But the Internet was a mysterios country for me. But now, thanks to polite managers in the Internet cafe where I write you from I learned how to treat with the Internet.
I think it’s high time to tell some words about myself. My name is Natalya (you can call me Natasha), I am 30 years old. I was born on the 25th of December in 1978.You can see that I am Capricorn. That's why I am so persevering, calm and consecutive. When I have a purpose I go forward to reach it. And I can confess that in the majority of cases I manage to reach it)And what is your Zodiac sign? Are you a typical representative of your sign?
A I am a very sociable girl and I try to discover something new. I try to make my life full of impressions and for me it's necessary to look for something new in my life.
My relatives and friends often tell me that I am very good-humored and kind. I am very responsible and I always do what I promise. This feature of my character often helps in my life. And what can you tell me about your character? What are your likes and dislikes in people's character?
I attach a picture of myself to my letter. How do you find it? Please, tell me frankly, I really need to know your opinion about my appearance!!! I send you my best photos to produce good impression on you. So, I hope that my efforts weren't vain!!! My height is 168 sm and my weight is 56 kg. I consider myself to be rather slender and I try to keep fit. I think that my appearance is quite typical for Russia. How do you think, Jeff, what is more important, appearance or character?
I live in Omsk. I like my city very much and I think that it's one of the most beautiful cities in the world. What can you tell me about the place you live in? Is it big or small? What sights are there? It will be very interesting for me to know more about your city. Frankly speaking, I want to enlarge my horizons and to know more about the world that surrounds me.
Jeff, you can't believe, but this letter made me so glad. I hope that you won't mind of telling some things about yourself. Also I’d like ask you to send me some more pictures of yourself.
Hope to hear from you soon, your new friend Natasha.

Letter 2

Hello, dear Jeff!!!Earlier I had the friend. But he to me has changed, with another I could not excuse to him such. I should overturn with him. I do not want to recollect, that the past it is already indifferent.
I do not like, when me deceive.
This autumn day presented me with your letter and that's why this rainy and clouded day became brighter and sunnier! I am really happy to say to you again Hello! and to begin writing you my answer.
I'd like to tell you about my job. I work as a cook in a restaurant for about 8 years. i like my job very much because I can help people to be sated and glad. I feel that it's my calling, Jeff. When i see how a person eats my delicious dishes I feel very satisfied, really. I apply a lot of fantasy and diligence when i do them. I like to cook almost all dishes but especially i adore cakes and pies. Also I like to cook meat dishes because my parents adore them.
My mom's name is Irina Sergeevna. My mom used to be a cook too, and I decided to follow her example. Now she doesn't work any longer, she is a pensioner. My father is a builder. His name is Leonid Alexeevich. He assisted in building of a lot of houses and buildings of our city and he is very proud of this fact.
My family is very friendly. I live together with my mum and dad and we never have quarrels. I am the only child in my family because after my birth my mom had some problems with health and she was told that she won't be able to have any more children. I have never been married and I don't have children. And what can tell me about your family? If it isn't a secret I 'd like to know more about it. May be you'll be able to send me some pictures of your family? I really want to look at your relatives!
I don't smoke and I don't drink alcohol drinks. Only on holidays I may drink some white wine. And what's your attitude to drinking and smoking?
Of course, you can ask me, Jeff, why I made a decision to look for relationship in the Internet? Frankly speaking it's a rather difficult question for me. I consider myself to be a very attractive woman who has everything to be loved and to love… but... Yet I have never met such man who would accept me with all my advantages and drawbacks. Two years ago I had some relations with one man. He seemed to me to be very polite and very well treating me. But once I was told that he is dating at the same time with another woman. Naturally I couldn't tolerate such situation and I decided to separate with him.
It was really a great stress for me, Jeff. After that I haven't had any serious relations. I tried to concentrate myself on my job.... but I think that this feeling is familiar to you, feeling of solitude, and feeling that it's necessary to find a man who would understand and support you.
And I also want to ask you, Jeff, (if it isn't a secret), why you decided to look for relations in Internet? I'd like to know it, so if it isn't a great secret, write me, please, OK?
Jeff, I'd like to know the best dream of your life, if it isn't a secret of course. But I still hope you'll tell it to me...
As for me I dream to have my own house somewhere in the suburbs of the city and to live there with my beloved man. I want to have not big, but cozy house with a small garden full of flowers and bushes. Of course it is very expensive but I am sure that it is possible. There is nothing impossible in our life, isn’t it, Jeff?
I hope you will like my letter and it wasn't to long for you.
Well, it is all for the moment. I wait for your letter and wish you a good day!
Your Natasha.
